Some good stuff here...GQ can't be posted here, so I just gave the link.

Rubio says his best political friends are Jim DeMint and Jeb Bush. Good choices, I think.

GQ tries to trap Rubio into getting into social/religious/moral questions...things that hurt Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock. Rubio didn't fall for it.

They asked him about the age of the earth--an obvious ploy to get him to talk about evolution vs. creation...but Rubio says that has nothing to do with our economy and GDP...

They ask him why Republicans are so against sodomites and the perversion of marriage. He says he thinks it is wrong for one side to be able to speak up and the other is told to shut up.

I like Rubio.

I know a lot of people think he is a sell out. I don't.

Amnesty will guarantee conservatives wander in the wilderness for another forty years. Twenty-five million new Democrat voters is not what this country needs. And we don’t need to recruit foreign workers. Anyone seen the unemployment numbers recently? Or the huge deficits run up by socialist democrats and “compassionate” conservatives?

Just wait until the Dem Machine/MSM starts tearing him to shreds. He’ll end up looking to the average uninformed voter like a combination of Adolph Hitler and Torquemada.

They don’t want amnesty, they want free stuff.

They’ll take amnesty, but they’ll still demand the free stuff.

Abortion, Amnesty, Military Strength, Capitalism, Freedom and Liberty are things I will NEVER compromise on and with the 2012 election lost... I have voted for the last republican party liberal ever. If rubio or any other pubbie pol pushes Amnesty or abortion, I will turn on the gop like a viper.

Rubio IS a Natural Born Citizen.

Rubio was a citizen at the moment of his birth and that is all that is required.

NOBODY with any legal authority, no elected official, no judge, no immigration attorney, disagrees with me on this.

Nobody with any legal authority agrees with you.

I think Rubio will come under fierce attack over a comment he made a while ago that confused the timeline of his ancestors arriving from Cuba or something.

If Rubio evolves into a serious national player, his mis-statement (if indeed it was) will milked for all it is worth.

I don’t think he’s a sell-out, and he manages to keep focused on the actual issues, and not just the economic ones, without falling into their traps.

I think he did quiet down after Romney got nominated and even when it became apparent that Romney was going to be the nominee, unfortunately. Romney obviously wanted his bland non-disruptive view of the GOP to be the one that was presented. Even Ryan had wanted to go to urban areas, including black areas, and make the economic and moral pitch, but Romney wouldn’t let him. So I guess we can’t blame Rubio for being muted during the campaign, since he obviously wasn’t going to run third party or go off on his own.

One of the problems with both Akin and Mourdock is that they made off-hand remarks that they should have known better than to make...and then defended them to the death, even knowing that it would mean the loss of these seats. This was because having the GOP win was not important to them: the only important thing to them was their ego.

Rubio does understand the need to be a party player, but I think you’ll see him emerging much more in the future or perhaps getting the party to go in a better direction. He’s a great speaker (I’ve seen him), witty and pleasant but doesn’t talk down to his audience, and can defend his points.

Rubio’s already hit Iowa. Seems he can’t wait to get the buzz started.

I’d be much more excited about someone like Mike Pence.

So, let me get this straight. I am expected to get all excited about Rubio (who I do like) for the next four years. Work on his campaign, donate money (if any of us have any money left), etc. and watch the Democrats blatantly steal the election from us and, again, watch the GOP never even mention it, confront it or do one thing about it.

Nah, I'll pass.

The unemployment numbers don’t really tell the story.

Look at the labor participation rates under BHO:

Or the employment-population ratio:

said at the time when Ryan was picked but got slated off some that we shoudl ave had Rubio on the ticket instead.

It would have brought hispanics to our side, would have shown hispanics that we want them plus een wiht the massive corruption and fraid the Dems did we could have certanly got FL, , VA, OH, , maybe NM but probably not enough to get WI.

Notice how the left will go full blown now to take Rubio out before he poses a threat to them

The jury is still out for me. But I’m admittedly very wary of Rubio due to his status as a protege of Jeb Bush. That sends alarm bells. Loud and blaring alarm bells. My first doubts arose when he demured with a rather weaselly response when questioned about Jan Brewer and the passage of the Arizona law a couple of years back.

If he joins in on this amnesty bandwagon, he’ll never receive one shred of support from me. I can promise that.

Well, we’ve got McCain, Graham, Rubio, Bush (any and all of them) crying their little eyes out for amnesty. And they’re backed up by the GOP establishment and “conservative” pundits galore. Not only amnesty, but they want us to back off on “extreme” causes like abortion, homosexual marriage, deficits, debt, even opposition to high taxes on the “wealthy.” I can remember when the Republican party supposedly stood for life, family, free enterprise, small government, low taxes and the defense of God, country, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They’ll never learn. Due to the complete lack of conservative leadership within the Republican party, godless spread-the-wealth-around Marxism is taking root in American hearts.

Praying the tea party rises to the occasion.

I came here and now I am legal and American.

Now why can;t all those here llegally be told you want to come here, you need to go back home first, apply for a visa like others at the American consulate.

We will go over your case but anyone here after 6 months or even your children will be deported and never be allowed to come back.

Legal’s do it this way so why not illegals and I think that is what Rubio has said or there abouts.

if anyone thinks we’ll ever win again with the lefts fraud and rigging of elections then they must be mad.

We have to tackle the frad and corruption and then say to those who wish to come here, welcome but legally.

Why that is so hard for some to understand or say is beyond me.

We’re not talking about hispanics but Africans Asians etc too.
Point out our social issues which we have more in common with but these idiots on our side all the can say right now is no taxes which does not play well seeing as the elft makes it about the top 2%

I agree 1000% my brother... and I am willing to fight until I have nothing left... but I need people fighting beside me that are fighting for the same things. I agree... the time is now to form opposition to the republican party. They can woo us like they do illegal invaders... especially if they want our votes... and there are more of us than there are of them. They lost because 3.5 million republicans did not vote... add 20 plus million like us that held our noses again and voted for the liberal republican... you subtract our votes from the base and see what kind of minority party the gop actually is. BTW... after all of the stories on abc, cbs, nbc, mslsd and cnbc about dropping gas prices... Fox just reported a 2 buck increase per barrel of oil today. The USA has one shot at 2014 and I will not vote for the gop if they do not change from their socialist, GODless positions. Citizenship means more than entering our country illegally and looking for handouts and/or being brown skinned.

Don't be fooled that all hispanics will suddenly vote Republican. Rubio is Cuban & a lot of other hispanics will not be as giddy over him as you think.

“Rubio says his best political friends are Jim DeMint and Jeb Bush. Good choices, I think.”

Rubio wants the blessing of the Bush family. If Jeb really is his friend, Rubio will mellow into a moderate Republican and I'm sure he already wants some form of amnesty to garner the votes of Hispanics in Florida and beyond.

I agree with Jim that more infusion of Hispanics will doom conservatives until the country collapses economically (which it probably will do soon).

"Amnesty will guarantee conservatives wander in the wilderness for another forty years. Twenty-five million new Democrat voters is not what this country needs."

Not necessarily. There is a legitimate compromise condition....it is called "permanent residency". Currently "permanent residency" includes an almost automatic path the citizenship. Change that so that for ILLEGAL immigrants, the citizenship option is eliminated......they will be allowed to stay in the US and work, but NEVER, EVER be allowed to vote.

For minor children brought here illegally by their parents, a similar condition of permanent residency, but with the option to apply for citizenship upon reaching age 21, with the conditions of successfully getting an education (high school diploma minimum) OR serving a term in a branch of the US military and being honorably discharged.

Finally, such legislation MUST close the Mexican/US border, by whatever means necessary.

The above meets any sane notion of "compassion" and fairness.

wasn[t implying that all hispanics would fall for him but having travelled our state many times every week for boxing and meeting hispanics all over then not all will fall for him but they are more open to him than some might think and our swing state will go for us even with the fraud .
As one hispanic freeper has just said on here too.

We don;t do what I said about immigration before and how to do it and do something about the lefts rigging of the elections then you can say good bye to us ever winning another election.
Trouble is with our side is that we have too many cowards who want to take the left and the media on and we alwasy react instead of being pro active.

Amnesty is wrong as I came here legally but why not do as I said earlier, you can read that by looking at my other posts on here
